Based on the previews, this RHOP Recap may not be all that interesting. I’m not even going to pretend to recap Candiace looking at a $2.5 million dollar home. In other news, my cable service crapped out just before this episode started and the DVR is all kinds of messed up.
We start with Gizelle trying to make Ashley Darby believe that she has her back. She clearly does not. I wish that she and Robyn would support Ashley, but I don’t see that happening this season. However, even I can’t co-sign Ashley’s dark wig she wears in her talking heads. Please let that be a wig. And that we never see it again. Nevertheless, these three go out to Gizelle’s new property to christen the land. And to gossip about everyone who isn’t there.
Katie Rost Has Been Fired
The first piece of gossip is about Katie and how she talks crap about Ashley and Michael behind their backs. But the big news is it seems that Katie has been fired from RHOP! I think they realized this season that her mental health issues are a liability. She is not even allowed to attend the reunion. Personally, I think this is for the best. Katie is very unwell. And Ashley says that Candiace sent nasty texts to Monique about her and Michael. Gizelle and Robyn seem pissed that Candiace was sold out. That’s kind of not the point if you are Ashley’s friends. Which they are not.
I do not understand the scenes with Ray and Karen’s family. Is this the house they don’t live in? Karen is talking about her nonexistent perfume. Karen’s son seems smart and normal.
Fathers and Babies
Michael and Ashley go out for sushi. I guess I am the last person on earth who doesn’t eat bait. They talked about moving on from the unfortunate situation Michael was in. Ashley says she wants to go see her father in Atlanta. She is planning on going with her mother. Michael is not on board with the plan at all. Ashley is in contact with her aunt, Shelia who lives in Georgia as well. She seems supportive of Ashley but not so optimistic about the meetup with her father.
Monique’s water breaks much earlier than expected. And chaos ensues. Actually, it seems like a reenactment. Monique screams her husband’s name and he asks the kids if someone is calling him. The phonecalls also looked fake. How did she get her doctor on the phone so fast? Oh it was a prank?! Who does that? Especially someone who already lost a baby! What is wrong with people?
An Actual Gala!?
How did this group of hooligans get invited to attend and film at an actual charity event? No one actually knows what the charity is for. Katie doesn’t even know where she is. But she has brought her mother with her. It’s seems Katie’s apple landed very near the tree, if you know what I mean. Apparently, it was Katie and her mom that had the actual invitation to the charity. Katie’s husband tells a weird story about Michael telling him some like if he ever calls him and is on another call, he will answer. It makes no sense at all.
Anyway, we are going to trash talk Michael at this event. That is apparently the point. Oh and Robyn and Gizelle want to throw Monique under the bus for showing Ashley the mean texts Candiace sent about Michael. Candiace says Monique doesn’t even like Ashley.
Ashley & Her Mom Head To Atlanta
Ashley and her mom meet Aunt Shelia and her husband, Jim, at a restaurant. They seem like nice people. Jim doesn’t really endorse this entire meetup. Ashley on the other hand is so jacked up about this. Ashley is ramping up my anxiety by driving with zero hands on the wheel. I’m literally going to have a panic attack.
We end with Ashley approaching the door. And Some dumb fuck is knocking on mine at 9pm!!!
Next week, Robyn wants to take truck driving lessons. Candiace and her mother go to lunch at a winery, Monique goes head to head with Gizelle and Robyn.
